Primed in situ labeling technique for subtelomeric rearrangements in 70 children with idiopathic mental retardation

Subtelomeric rearrangements contribute to idiopathic mental retardation (MR), but most children with idiopathic MR do not show any chromosome abnormalities with standard cytogenetic analysis. The primed in situ labeling (PRINS) technique, using an oligonucleotide primer complementary to the telemetric repeat sequences (TTAGGG), can identify chromosome… CONTINUE READING
